Lung tan xie gan wan literally means cool the blood of the liver. In Western medicine the liver is described as its function of:
- Bile production and excretion.
- Excretion of bilirubin, cholesterol, hormones, and drugs.
- Metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.
- Enzyme activation.
- Storage of glycogen, vitamins, and minerals.

- Blood detoxification and purification
